Description of key information

Additional information

In accordance with REACH, Annex IX, Section 9.4, column 2, experimental investigations are not triggered, if direct and indirect exposure of the terrestrial compartment is unlikely. The substance is not directly applied to soil and based on its intended use will not enter the terrestrial environment. The indirect exposure of soil to this substance via sewage sludge is also of no concern based on the treatment of the sludge. The PNECsoil is calculated by the equilibrium partition method (EPM) in accordance to ECHA Guidance R.10. REACH Guidance Chapter R.7B and R.7C state that if the PEC/PNEC ratio is below 1, then no risk for the compartment is indicated, that the information available may be sufficient to conclude the assessment, and there is no need to perform further tests. In addition, ECHA Chapter R.7B guidance states that if the substance is not considered a PBT or vPvB candidate, then it is considered not necessary to conduct further testing on the compartment. Therefore, on the basis of a lack of potential exposure, and hence risk, and low risk demonstrated by the RCRs less than 1 based on EUSES modelling, it is considered that the information available is sufficient and further testing is not required. If necessary, data available from aquatic toxicity testing can be used as a worst case scenario if further characterisation of the terrestrial compartment is desired.
